" . . . this volume includes members of virtually every known family of Lepidoptera and illustrates over one thousand of the more scientifically and visually dramatic species. The A-Z Dictionary of some two thousand entries gives the scientific facts: distribution, habitats, food plants, sizes, and unusual relationships that occur - the ant-reared caterpillar, for example, or the moths on which the yucca plant depends for fertilization. The alphabetical format offers immediate access to a vast amount of information - based on years of intensive research by the authors - on the entirety of the Order Lepidoptera throughout the world. The text is complemented by 144 pages of stunning full-colour plates, showing more than a thousand species in their natural habitat or as set specimens." Includes Glossary.
